If you’re looking for the ideal dress for this years party season you can’t go to wrong with the lace dress. Certainly we’ve seen this trend grow over the year and we can only see it getting stronger during the run up to the Christmas Party season, and with the shops full of dresses featuring lace, and you’ve got your hands full with choosing the right one for you.
The thing that makes a lace dress so distinctive is its delicate fabric but with a sultry evocative undercurrent, lace is one of those rare fabrics that has a mystery about it, and can only be achieved with particular types of fabric such as leather and silk also, but one thing’s for sure, you cannot help but exude Uber sexiness when wearing lace, especially in black.
However, a black lace dress is not the only colour of lace that can look great; there’s a whole myriad of colours which are now available and which look equally as good using lace as the main dress fabric, take the the ivory lace dress for example, or the deep richness of a royal purple lace dress. It’s equally important to remember that the colour of the dress needs to suit you also, as not everyone can pull off a black dress, Remember girls its not necessarily the wrong outfit, but the wrong colour so dress for your skin tone to add that extra ooomph!
Of course while colour is important the style of dress is too, and the lace dress comes in every possible style imaginable, from prom dress, backless lace dress and shift dresses, so again as with your skin tone, be careful that the lace dress you choose will suit your body shape too.
